2022 Building Performance Analysis Conference and SimBuild
Co-organized by ASHRAE and IBPSA-USA

September 14-16, 2022 | Chicago, IL 

ASHRAE and IBPSA-USA will jointly host the annual Building Performance Analysis Conference & SimBuild for 2022. The theme of the conference, “Better Buildings, Less Carbon: Supporting the Transition to A Clean and Just Climate” focuses on improving the decision-making process through the application of simulation and modeling over the entire building life cycle. Practitioners, vendors, researchers, utility and government officials, and owners will address the practices of energy modeling and building performance simulation using existing simulation tools, software development, and future simulation research and applications.

The anticipated conference program consists of Keynote Speakers, Invited Speakers, a Call for Papers, a Call for Presentations and the eight ASHRAE LowDown Showdown.

  • Call for Abstracts

    A call for abstracts closed on October 4, 2021.

    The Steering Committee sought abstracts on topics involving the use of innovative approaches for integration of modeling tools for better building design, performance and operation to meet aggressive targets for compliance, energy reduction, decarbonization and resiliency. 

    By showcasing research and studies being done to improve resiliency and reduce carbon in buildings, this conference would like to encourage a discussion on the challenges facing engineers, designers and analysts as we design the buildings of tomorrow.”
